How to Have the Second Brain to Remember More

Your whole life depends on you being able to retrieve things from your memory. I’m sure you know what I mean… “Where are my keys?” “What major tasks do I need to complete today?” “What time is that meeting I need to attend?” Questions such as these bombard our minds daily. If you’re able to recall the relevant information, you’ll keep your life on track. However, if you fail to recall the information – your life will start to move in a confused and unproductive direction. We’d all love to boost our memories, but often we go about it in the wrong way. It’s not about how much information we can absorb into our minds, but how easily we can retrieve this information (which most people aren’t good at). Information Overload = Memory Failure We live in an information age , where our minds are besieged 24/7 by facts, figures, news, drama and trends.

How to Have a Lasting Relationship If You and Your Partner Speak Different Love Languages

How do you express love? How do you want to be loved in a relationship? If you’re like most of us, you fall into 1 of the 5 love language categories (with a couple strong influencers) [1] : Words of Affirmation – Saying: “I love you”, “You’re amazing”, and “I’m so lucky”. Acts of Service – Actions speak louder than words. Receiving Gifts – Little tokens of love and affection make you smile all day. Quality Time – Time is valuable and you want to spend it with your significant other. Physical Touch – Hugging, cuddling, and holding hands is how you let the world know you’re in love. Now that you’ve identified your personal love language, what about your partner’s? Is it the same or different? Do you know?
